Host A Glow-In-The-Dark Dance Party For Tweens & Teens In Your Community

Being on an event planning committee for your community is a great way to volunteer. When brainstorming for ideas for events to host, be sure to keep the tweens and teens in the community in mind. Research shows that boredom in youth can lead to drug use, troublemaking, and sometimes violence, especially in communities that do not have programs in place for youth or facilities for them to go to.

Fortunately, there are events you can host to give tweens and teens something to do, such as a glow-in-the-dark dance party. Glow-in-the-dark parties utilize special UV lights (also called black lights) to make various things glow. Here's how to bring it all together. 


Purchase glow-in-the-dark bracelets, necklaces, and sticks to hand out to the party-goers as well as to decorate the facility. White paper glows under black light, and you can also use fluorescent paint on black paper to decorate. Some plastics glow under black light as well, particularly ones that are neon or brightly colored. Party supply stores typically have a good selection of items that will glow under black lights. 


The main attraction of the event will be a dance with special lights to really make the venue glow, but you can also have a few games on the side, such as glow-in-the-dark twister and ring toss using glow-in-the-dark bracelets. Use fog machines and lasers set to the beat of the music for additional effects that will entertain and excite the party-goers. Contact an entertainment lighting rental company for more information about the various lights they have that will get your party glowing. 


Provide glowing refreshments to the party-goers. Tonic water can be used to make beverages. It has a substance called quinine, which glows in black light. You can dip frosted cupcakes into a gelatin and tonic water mixture to give them a glow. Mix tonic water into vanilla ice cream and refreeze, then provide various toppings for a sundae station. 


Give the kids a way to remember the event by providing them with an area where they can have their picture taken or take selfies. If your budget allows, consider renting a photo booth. If not, ask the lighting rental service to provide appropriate lighting for picture-taking that won't compromise the black light's ability to make the decorations glow.
